Legalism! Almost no one is neutral on the subject. Some see a legalist behind every attempt to
encourage holiness in the lives of God’s people, while others fail to see that
they have fallen into the clutches of legalistic thinking. In the name of calling people to
righteousness, many add to the Word of God and form a system destined to end in
an unbiblical approach to godly living.
The results of legalism are devastating. Many fail to learn to think, or
at least think biblically, but continue to conform to the rules that have been
laid before them. Robotic in their obedience, they never experience the joy of
the freedom available in Christ. Others
rebel, not only against the system, but against even those teachings that are
true to the Scriptures. These rebels
often leave their families and the church in pursuit of personal pleasure. In so doing they find themselves becoming
slaves to sin. This book is designed to
expose legalism and its tragic results, and then point the way to a true
holiness that is based in biblical motivations.
Christ is glorified only through truly holy lives.
